Latin America and the Caribbean has the highest percentage in the world of self-employed women and women-led enterprises represent one third of all enterprises in the region. However, women and their businesses face several barriers and restrictions in accessing finance, a situation that has been aggravated in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The objective of this event is to showcase two successful cases of innovations to improve financing for women entrepreneurs: the “Crece Mujer” programme of Banco Estado in Chile, and the first gender bond in Mexico, issued by the National Development Bank FIRA in the Institutional Stock Exchange, to increase the financing available for women’s projects in rural areas.
